Racist Sees Racism, umm, well, Everywhere
« on: September 19, 2017, 07:20:45 AM »
Freakin riot!!! :laugh:



Crafts store Hobby Lobby is taking serious heat for a store display that one woman is calling “racist.”

On Thursday, Facebook user Daniell Rider posted a photo to Hobby Lobby’s Facebook page, of a vase of cotton flowers displayed in a Texas store. She captioned it, “This decor is WRONG on SO many levels. There is nothing decorative about raw cotton… A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves. A little sensitivity goes a long way. PLEASE REMOVE THIS ‘décor.’”

The $29.99 stems (marked down to $15 on the company website) was shared more than 15K times and earned 169K comments, an overwhelming majority of which ridiculed Rider for being “too sensitive” and a few that defended her stance.

Some people see racism every where, but this seems a bit over board. It's raw cotton not a lynch rope.  :rolleyes:

It has become an industry and some have mastered how to turn everything in our society into racism.

Of course they'd take issue with black being on the bottom for the white to 'TREAD' On it.   OK, I'm going away...

NK slave labor made the yarn. But that's OK, they hate Asians.
